History of Westenhanger Castle

Westenhanger Castle courtyard

Westhanger Castle is a medieval and later fortified manor house with a medieval chapel and cemetery which passed into Crown ownership in the 16th century.

From the late 16th century the castle was back in private ownership with many of the buildings being taken down when the castle was sold again in 1701.

The present house was constructed in the 18th century from the remains of the 16th-century crossing of the main hall. The Westenhanger Castle is a grade I listed building and scheduled ancient monument.

Currently, the castle is open for private hire and occasionally for visitors.
